Hyacinth

June 19, 2017

I’ve done more flower scents this spring that I have in a long long time! Even a lot of the fruity ones have undertones of floral to them.  This one didn’t quite go as plan when it came to piping the flowers, but you’d probably not guess that unless I pointed it out to you, huh?

HYACINTH:  the fresh floral aroma of real hyacinth flowers.

Look at how the green morphed and then turned back to it’s original dark green!

Paradise Reef (and a Happy Birthday)

June 10, 2017

If you’ve been following my blog or FB page for any length of time you’ve noticed I love soap stamping.  I especially love it when I can create a scene.  I invite you to go take a swim in the ocean and admire the fish. 😀

PARADISE REEF: begins with notes of nectarine, bird of paradise,  and water lily,  followed by middle notes of passion flower, orchid, and hyacinth.  A well-rounded fragrance empowered by fresh air and salt water notes.

The picture doesn’t do this soap justice. Again I had a bad picture day when I photographed the spring soaps.  But, it really is a cute soap with the fish and shell.

Available HERE!

And guess what today’s my birthday! 😀 Use the code 40FREESHIP to get free shipping on orders over $40 plus I’ll throw in a gift  lip balm with your order!


Hawaiian Ginger

June 5, 2017

I was in the mood for COLOR!  And more specifically neons!  I haven’t used neons in so long. I don’t know why that is cause oh man they make some fun soaps!

HAWAIIAN GINGER: is a tropical array containing top notes of tangy pineapple, freshly-sliced summer melons, and crisp apple slices.  Middle notes include iris, rose, jasmine, and cyclamen.  Base notes of vanilla and musk make this fragrance a perfect blend.

Look at this loveliness!  And the final cut version I was happy with too.  This soap just puts a smile on my face.

I did a reverse imprint on this one, but it didn’t come out. The soap as you can see just was ashy and soft and isn’t staying to the bottom of the soap. Oh well!

Lavender Apple

May 22, 2017

I think I need to rename this one.  There’s no lavender in it even though the name implies such.  I’m just not sure what to call it.  It’s a floral-y/apple-y scent…but since I couldn’t come up with a name to fit the scent has stayed lavender-apple :D.  This soap didn’t go at all as planned. I was rushed and didn’t have time for the bottom layer to set up and the top IPS broke completely through and once it started breaking I just went with it and well here’s what I ended up with.

LAVENDER APPLE:  starts with top notes of red delicious apple, raspberries, plum, and sugar; followed by middle notes of floral rosaceous green notes, lilac, pear, and eucalyptus; and sits on a powdery, woodsy musk base note.

Available HERE!


Sandalwood & Amber

April 14, 2017

This was a blend that I didn’t think would work, but really did! And quite well.  Maybe because I know the two scents I blended but my nose catches one and then the other and then back to the other.  It’s funny. I do like though.  It mellows the sandalwood scent a bit and gives it a bit more of a musky scent.

A woody, lush and sensual note of sandalwood blended with rustic Amber and bold Parisian Lavender. Combined with these main scents is a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk.

Wild Currant & Sandalwood

April 12, 2017

I made this soap years ago (a different design) and really liked it and decided to make it again this year.  I just made a small batch.  The design DID NOT go as planned. I know if you’re looking at you probably say it looks great. And it does, but it was NOT what I wanted.  😀

It is a blend with top notes of Clementine, Grapefruit, and Black Berries; middle notes of Wild Fig, Black Currant, and Passion Fruit; all surrounded with base notes of Precious Woods, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Metallic Musk.

Pineapple Papaya Ginger

April 9, 2017

This is another blend I created and love. I made the soap for me.  I had to really cool intricate design planned and then I added in the fragrance and seizing started and I went into “jam it in the mold” mode.  It still smells yummy!

Sweet, juicy and tropical! A tantilizing blend of citrus top notes, and sweet fruits and sugared base notes. At first sniff, mandarin, pineapple and coconut palms open this bright fragrance. Mid notes of papaya guava and pomegranate are rounded out with a base of sugarcane, sandalwood and cypress. Tough with a hint of ginger.
